It is divided into three stages, with the first one (this one) starting at Il Vecchio Conventino, in via Giano della Bella, 20/1 (Porta Romana area), where ARTEX, Centro per l'Artigianato Artistico e Tradizionale della Toscana is based, as well as more than 20 different workshops, where artisans work every day using traditional techniques of Florentine art and crafts.
Il Vecchio Conventino is a unique place and an original experience, bringing together so many artisans in one place. On the second Sunday of each month, with the event/market “Lungoungiorno + Fierucola” the place is filled with plenty of curious visitors. It’s not easy to choose from the many shops present, but we did it! Here are some tips for shops to visit, places that also offer the possibility to book practical demonstrations, enabling you to get "hands-on", or just listen to the noise of the gears grinding and the stories told.
